What’s wrong with American health care?
Why do almost 100,000 die each year due to medical errors and 1.5 million patients hurt because of preventable medication mistakes?
Why are millions of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures still performed?
Why are people fed myths which are potentially harmful to their health while beneficial truths are kept hidden?
Why do big pharmaceutical companies rake in billions of dollars annually but more than 100,000 people still die each year from expected, adverse drug reactions? And why do otherwise safe natural health supplements need to pass through the proverbial eye of the needle just to get FDA approval?
Is modern medicine no longer about health but for profit?
Natural health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola, an osteopathic physician by training, was part of the system during the first few years of his practice, until he realized that the traditional methods only provide temporary relief for patients and do not actually address the underlying causes of disease.
Dr. Mercola has since redirected his focus towards providing Americans with the resources that will help them take control of their health. The articles in this blog, doctormercola.com, are based on the expert opinions and recommendations of Dr. Mercola and selected information published on his website.
